"...the multiple personality dynamically revealed in LORD JIM...the preposterous inventions of some Faulkner interviews suggest a humorous disdain for a public that had so long misread his work." " A letter of April 6 1892, in which Conrad speaks of 're-reading MADAME BOVARY with an admiration tinged with respect.'" " It has taken the fiction of Greene, Moravia, Flaiano, Koestler, and others to connect fully private conscience and public political crime; to convince us that the moral anarchies and cynicisms and betrayals which Conrad insisted are realities --not ornaments of fiction." "AN OUTPOST OF PROGRESS offers a significant variant on HEART OF DARKNESS" "'..and through the deep and tremendous noises suddenly yells that resembled snatches of songs from a madhouse darted shrill and high in discordant jets of sound which seemed to rush high above the earth and drive all peace from the stars.'"
